THE Re­turn Of The King Whinge. It’s been six years since the last se­ries of Curb ended with Larry David ex­il­ing him­self to Paris, and, with­out his shin­ing ex­am­ple and ad­vice on mat­ters of eti­quette and so­cial in­ter­ac­tion, it’s been pretty, pretty hard trying to make it through the day. Put it this way: Larry’s been off­screen so long we’ve never even seen him deal­ing with an Uber driver. The ques­tions of where he’s been, what he’s been do­ing, and, cru­cially, what’s been an­noy­ing him are press­ing – but sadly, no ad­vance pre­view material was avail­able for this long-awaited ninth se­ries (un­less you count the episodes leaked on­line as part of the re­cent HBO hack). But we know a few things. Larry is back in LA; he has a new pro­ject on the go; all the reg­u­lar cast re­turn, along with new guests like Bryan Cranston; and, ac­cord­ing to co-star Jeff Gar­lin, “the sto­ry­line is kind of crazy ...” What­ever’s com­ing, watch­ing LD get­ting to grips with Amer­ica’s Trumpian era will be a trip worth tak­ing.
